I'm trying to link or import a file wiht "dbf" extension "dBaseIII(*.dbf)".
Access throws :
"The Microsoft database engine couldn't fing the object 'Addresses.dbf'."
I know that Access has no problem with reading "dbf" files.
Can you help me please .
Is this a one off link (ie you are importing the data into an Access db, and then ignoring the dbf), or a permanent link (ie the dbf retains information)
How have you specified the path to the dbase file. Even when I'm developing on a single PC I tend to fully qualify the location of any external resource with the URL
I'm not sure how access will resolve the filename to a physical location. Presumably it depends on what you have set your start up directory to be (either in the shortcut or tools | settings)
So I'd suggest you need to identify where the file is and explcitly tell access at the time of linking where it is.
\\<servername>\<path to object>
so presumably in this case it could be
